1971 & The Silly Bastard Next to the Bed
USA, 2014, 80 minutes

Director: Johanna Hamilton

Before WikiLeaks, before Edward Snowden, there was the The Citizens' Commission to Investigate the FBI. On March 8, 1971 they broke into a small FBI office, took every file, and shared them with the American public. These actions exposed COINTELPRO, the FBI's illegal surveillance program that involved the intimidation of law-abiding Americans and helped lead to the country's first Congressional investigation of U.S. intelligence agencies. Never caught, forty-three years later, these everyday Americans  parents, teachers and citizens  publicly reveal themselves for the first time and share their story.

The Silly Bastard Next to the Bed

The Silly Bastard Next to the Bed is a documentary short about one of the funniest calls ever made from the Oval Office. In July of 1963, the Washington Post printed an article about the Air Force's $5,000 refurbishing of a hospital room for the First Lady. The President blew a gasket when he saw the story, picked up the phone, and immediately dialed an Air Force general at the Pentagon. The resulting conversation was captured for posterity by the White House telephone taping system.
